Week(end) Update + A Giveaway

Hey everyone!  Hope y'all had a good weekend.  Linking up with Biana, Ashley, and Bella to share what we've been up to:
1 // Last week while I was working, two adorable ducklings came running towards my group of students.  We looked all over for the mama duck but could not find her or any other ducks.  I called a bunch of different wildlife groups to find one to ask about ducks and what to do with these babies.  Finally, I found one that wanted to take them to their reserve, but they wouldn't be able to pick them up for a few hours, so I brought the babies home, and as you can see, they definitely thought Mike was their mom.  

2 // On Saturday, we had our kickball team over for a sleeve-cutting/pool party.  It's over 90 degrees at 9:00 at night when our games take place... no one has time for cotton sleeves.  Lots of Kan Jam and pool time ensued.

3 // Saturday evening, we took a drive out to Edisto to finally explore Botany Bay.  Can't wait to write more about this more and share some photos this week.

4 // Oh, the food.  We made so many of my favorites this weekend: pasta salad for our Saturday pool party and definitely the best pinned recipe I have ever made - Korean Beef Bowl Sunday for dinner.

Lastly, I teamed up with a few ladies for a $75 PayPal giveaway!  Who doesn't love free money?  Wondering what to do with 75 extra dollars in your pocket?  Check out some of Sarah's great ideas

Girl I hear ya on the not having time for cotton sleeves! I'm pretty much sleeveless from May-early October here (not that I'm complaining!), a sleeve cutting pool party sounds like so much fun. And how adorable are those little duckies! Too cute <3

Pasta salad is my ultimate summer food for the pool – so delicious! Crazy that it’s still that hot when your games take place – stay cool!

I have never been to Edisto. Looking forward to seeing your other pictures.
